Oba Akiolu: A Curse Undeserved Against Igbos And Yorubas by tollu: 8:14am On Apr 11, 2015
First off, I would like to quote Proverbs 26:2 which says "Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow, an undeserved curse does not come to rest". The Oba's curse has no effect on me, you, or any Nigerian.

The Oba back in 2014 came out and cursed in the presence of Yoruba dignitaries:

But of course it was not news worthy so nobody blew it out of proportion, then came April 2015, he repeated the same thing, this time to an Igbo audience and all hell broke loose. The PDP and its media arm made it seem as though this is a problem between Yoruba and the Igbo Nation. It is not. The problem is with a king who does not know the position of his stool.

I want to plead with everyone to please vote in line with their conscience and not allow any evil group cloud you judgement with tribalism
Since time immemorial, people in power have fuelled their ambitions with the sensibilities of the people.


If you have decided to vote for Jimi Agbaje based on his antecedents, please go ahead and do that. Do not vote because PDP and its agents have decided to feed on your emotions.

Now, I will be voting for Ambode God willing.
This is because his past record is outstanding and he has much more to offer than a PDP government that has shown itself to be evil time and time again.

The Oba is entitled to his own opinion. Last time I checked, the Oba is NOT a card carrying member of any political party. His views does not represent that of APC as a party.

At the end of the day, all we all want is a Lagos that works for all. I do not see JK achieving that. Rather his antecedent has shown that he would legalize irregularities just to have his way.

Lagos works. APC works! Ambode will work for Lagosians irrespective of tribe. The only party playing the tribalism card here is PDP. Lagosians should be wiser not to fall for this trap like most did with Jonathan PDP in 2011.

Ambode2015! Gbogbo wa la l'eko!

And THAT is the bottom line.
